Personal profile

Research interests

Eleonora is Reader in Economics at the University of Bath. She joined the Department of Economics in March 2017 as Senior Lecturer. Since February 2019 she is Deputy Head of Department, co-Editor of Health Economics Letters and Associate Editor of Health Economics. Previously, she was working at the Manchester Centre for Health Economics, University of Manchester where she held an MRC Early Career Fellowship in Economics of Health (2013-2016).

Eleonora attained her PhD in Economics at the University of Nottingham, her M.Sc. in Economics at University College London and her B.A. at Bocconi University (Milan).

She has held visiting positions at the Institute for Fiscal Studies and at the Center for Demography and Ecology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She is Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Manchester.

Eleonora's research interests are in the economics of health and applied micro-econometrics. As such, she leads the research theme on "Social Determinants of Health". Her research investigates the socio-economic determinants of health in high and low and middle income countries. Her focus is on how individuals and organisations interact with each other and on the social determinants of health. Her recent work investigates the effect of information and taxes on consumer behaviour (including their dietary choices), health and housing, the relationship between medical treatment and individual behaviour, the effect of early life shocks on later life health and the relation between physical and mental health. She is also working on issues related to gender in academic career progression and wealth and political preferences.

Eleonora has obtained grants from the Medical Research Council (MRC), MRC jointly with DFiD and ESRC, the National Institute for Health Research, the Royal Economic Society, the Manchester Institute for Collaborative Research on Ageing, the University of Manchester Research Institute and the School of Social Sciences at the University of Manchester. Current grant-funded work examines the health impact of health financing systems in sub-Saharan Africa, and the effect of maternity leave policies on the academic job market. She is also working on the economic analysis of the effects of urban development on health within the TRU3D MRC consortium until 2024.

She has presented at several national and international conferences in economics, health economics and econometrics, and development economics.
